In my mid-twenties I was offered an opportunity to join Mary Kay Cosmetics.
I was shy and very insecure of myself
Yet the person who spoke to me about Mary Kay saw something in me that I did not see in myself, so I trusted her.
I went to a meeting to learn more.
I was surrounded by positive, optimistic, encouraging women. It was contagious. I wanted more.
It didn't take me long to know this where I was suppose to be.
I was a wife, mother, full-time employee, and a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant all rolled into one.
Did I mention, one very busy lady?
I overcame many obstacles to make this work. Most of them were in my mind. Yet I did it.
Being in the company for almost 7 yrs. and surrounded by incredible women I did things I never would have thought were possible.
I kicked fear in the a** many times.
Beyond the cosmetics, Mary Kay is all about empowering women to be the best they can be.
I am filled with tremendous gratitude for this woman and the empire she grew based upon her strong beliefs...
(P.S. I still listen to this song often!)
I am currently enrolled in several on-line classes that are offering the opportunity and tools to dig deep into our past for clarification.
